political organization or even political candidate in the last election, say mike lee or todd akin? >> yes, they had their misfires. but we have high participation and low democracy, what i mean by that is, washington's broken, the senate doesn't work, everything is filibustered and most seats are gerrymandered, if you are a republican, even with the tea party losses, you're more worried about running up against a tea party primary than facing competition in the general election. that's a deeper systemic problem that to their credit, whatever you think of their politics, the activists have learned how to endorse and get ahold of. >> it's not a grassroots movement, it was astroturf. does this indicate that again you have all these rich millionaire figures at the top arguing, book deals and buying out and being quiet. does it really belie the fact that this is not a grassroots movement or do you think that's inevitable with any group that's been funded by deep pocketed people? >> no, that's the problem, they have struggled to create a meaningful grassroots system within all the energy they h
and at the white house. we start with mike, live on capitol hill. what's the latest on republicans? and how are they reacting to the comments we heard from the president? >> reporter: good afternoon. the critical comments from president obama in a critical stage in these negotiations, certainly seem to hit a nerve. a spokesman for senator mitch mcconnell says while the president was tapingly those remark, senator mcconnell was trying to bring republicans and democrats together on a solution. the spokesman notes, discussions continue. if senator mcconnell and harry reid can reach a deal in the next couple of hours, leading senate republican notes there is no guarantee it will pass both the house and the senate. >> if mcconnell can't get 60% of us to vote for this deal, it will be hard for boehner to get it through the house. i want to vote for it even though i won't like it because the country has a lot at stake. >> among the republican krengs any revenue generated by a potential deal, they would like to see it come do paying down the deficit, not new government spending. shannon? >> how con
into a recession. gregg: mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. mike, any indication of the president's next move? >> reporter: well, gregg, last time we heard the president talk about the this matter he said he was calling on congressional leaders to essentially make sure taxes do not go up on middle class americans. presumably that would be a package that continues the bush tax cuts for those making up to $250,000. he would also like to continue emergency unemployment benefits for two million americans. and beyond that, details are kind of murky at this point. so we await the president to get back to washington. we know that the senate will be back in session today. we know there have been some conversations back and forth but at this point no indication that steps have moved forward closer to a deal, gregg. gregg: so, mike, if the senate comes back, what do we expect from them today? and then obviously the house? >> reporter: well, house speaker john boehner is in ohio. his aides told me a few moments ago ago if he has plans to travel. last night the speaker and the president of the united sta

. >> reporter: mike dickinson works for noble energy, which is doubling its production in weld county. this oil field stretches from colorado into wyoming. in 2008, it produced 83,000 barrels of oil, yet this year it is expected to reach nearly ten million barrels. how different is the technology that we're seeing here today versus what you were doing out here a couple of years ago? >> it's unrecognizable today compared to what we were doing just two or three years ago. >> reporter: oil companies used to mainly drill vertical wells, hitting one pool of oil. but now they are rapidly converting to horizontal wells up to a mile long and combining them with fracking operations which split open rocks, releasing oil once considered out of reach. and one drilling rigs can now install multiple wells in one location, making it more cost- efficient. a horizontal well produces seven to ten times more oil than a vertical well. >> today, we're not running any vertical rigs, and we're running eight horizontals. >> reporter: so this really is the future of what you're doing out here. >> it is. >> reporter: th

spokesman offering hope. mike tobin has the latest from houston. >> reporter: the latest release includes a phrase continues to improve in association with the former president's condition. the staff around former president bush made an effort to be lighthearted with the releases and optimistic, acknowledging he's pretty sick and he's 88. he's in the intensive care unit for a stubborn fever brought on as a complication with bronchitis that caused him to be hospitalized back toward the end of november. the staff around him is being jewish in terms of information they're giving out in part because he's so beloved that people will overreact if they get information. we do know from the staff he has been conversational with the nursing staff that is around him. if you ever had an opportunity to cover this president, particularly since his term ended, he's a funny guy, a stitch a minute. consistent with his personalty he's cracking jokes with the hospital staff but he's taking it further and singing with the hospital staff. you can interpret that as a good sign all the while taking into conside

like a big chop. we should go through and mike wise cuts, discontinue programs we don't need. and look at other ways and other programs. but, yeah. defense cuts need to happen since 2001, the budget is more than doubled. and when you look at exactly what we're spending, you wonder, what we're spending it on. i can tell you a lot of kids in the military, they're not seeing their pay go way up. this is being spent on other things. we got literally, over 100 military bases around the world. we're defending places where countries should take a greater responsibility for their own security and the united states doesn't need the policeman on the whole globe so i'm all in favor of serious defense cuts. we need to discontinue some of necessary soviet era defense systems. a lot of this spending is driven by kopg and not tcongress and n military. no doubt, me and nick -- i can't think of his last name mitch mikulski. we teamed up on a letter on which we proposed some serious defense cuts and we're looking forward to seeing that happen. >> so you have, obviously, worked a little bit with the repu
that mike's son, nick, came through. >> i understand they were very, very close friends, right? >> very, very close friends. it's very difficult for everybody and for our community. >> i think a lot of people were shocked, i know i was when i first heard about this on christmas eve morning. i just couldn't believe my ears when i had heard that these firefighters were shot. i thought as tragic as it would have been, i thought that they had perished in the fire while fighting the fire, which typically is what happened. but as you know, we're hearing new details. i want to read a part of a note that the shooter left saying in part i still have to get ready to see how much of the neighborhood i can burn down and do what i like doing best, killing people. this from the gunman, william spengler. when you saw that, what went through your mind? had you ever heard about anything like this happening? >> no. i really can't say exactly -- put into words what i'm feeling. i mean we've trained to go to fires. we go to fires and know that there's that possibility that you may become injured or whatnot
republicans that came to the mike today came to the microphone to talk about entitlements here on the senate side, about medicare. they see that as the gaping hole in the united states budget and many of them are frustrated that so far there really has not been any specific plan from the white house to try and deal with it. also remember, unemployment benefits run out tomorrow. so the fiscal cliff actually starts tonight. >> jessica, it was an interesting statement put out recently by a republican thinker who said that he thinks the president -- peekispeaking of t president, there he is. >> good afternoon, everybody. for the past couple of months, i've been working with leaders of both parties to try and forge an agreement that would grow our economy and shrink the deficit, a balanced plan that would cut spending in a responsible way but also ask the wealthiest americans to pay a little more. and above all, protect our middle class and everybody who's striving to get into the middle class. i still want to get this done. it's the right thing to do for our families, for our businesses and for
